6. 6

The first thing I did when I woke up was to go to the bathroom. My headache was not so bad, but when I looked in the mirror I saw that my cheek was still slightly swollen. I decided that a little makeup should do the trick. When I was done with covering it up, I went back into my room and looked for a cute outfit. I couldn’t help but smile, just a little. I had lied to my parents, to my dad, and gotten away with it.

When I was satisfied with my look I left the house and headed to the nearest bus stop. I had not been surprised when Liam had given me his address, but even though I know where it is, I had never actually been there. After fifteen minutes I got of the bus and walked the rest of the way. It almost felt like I had entered a different universe. The houses stretched on for an eternity. Over their fences I could skim perfect gardens and even the occasional swimming pool. None of the houses looked exactly the same, but they all seemed to have a spirit of importance and wealth surrounding them. Like they were trying to tell people like me that they are better.

When I reached the right house I followed the stone steps up to the front door. I knocked the door and after a few seconds Liam opened.

“Hey.” He said smiling. He was looking even better than I remembered. I could tell he had put on something casual for today. A pair of jeans and a white t-shirt that made it possible to glimse his muscles underneath. I definitely didn’t mind casual.


“Come on in, I’ll show you the house.” I followed him inside. The house was even bigger from the inside. I could see the dining room right in front of me and a staircase on the corner.

“Alright, so there is a bathroom in here-“ he pointed the left “and straight ahead is the kitchen, dining room and living room. Downstairs is pretty much the same only I have my bedroom there to.”

I followed him into the kitchen - through a little door and into a huge garden. It was beautiful. The grass was green and thick and there were a few flowers around too. In the right side of the garden there was a gigantic tree, stretching it’s branches protectively over the garden.

“It’s really beautiful out here.” I said and looked at him.

“I was thinking you’d maybe want to sit outside for a while?” he gestured to a small table on the opposite site of the tree with two matching chairs on either side.


“Great, then I’ll go get us something to drink.” He went back into the kitchen and I walked over to take a seat. Only I didn’t sit down at the table, but at the branch of the tree. Liam came out the door with two glasses in his hands.

“Over here.” I called. He came over and handed me one of the glasses.

“So, one thing to know about Liza, ‘not a fan of chairs’.” He proclaimed as if making a memo of it.

“Don’t really see the point.”  We sat in silence for a little while until Liam suddenly turned around and looked at me.

“Alright Liza, I have a proposition for you.” I turned slightly to face him.

“I want to get to know you, but I think it’s fair that if I get to ask a question you get to ask me one too.”

“You start then.” I said and put the glass down so I could sit a bit more comfortable.

He looked very thoughtful for a few seconds but then seemed to decide on an easy question.

“What are you doing after summer?”

“I’m going to college. At least I hope I am.”

“Wouldn’t you know already if you had been accepted?”

“You ask me a question I ask you one, remember?” I teased “How come you live here? I mean shouldn’t you be living in some superstar villa and not a housewife superb?”

He smiled and I could see his eyes sparkle from amusement.

“Well, when we split up the band I decided that living out of the spotlight would do me some good. And this place is perfect. It might just be a ‘house wife superb’ but it is private and it is mine.” He looked very proud as he said this, and I will admit it did sound wonderful having his one place. “My turn. How about your parents? Are they still together? What are they like?”

“They, uhm…” I mumled. I tried to think of a good lie, but the question had caught me off guard.

“You don’t have to say if you don’t want to” he said quickly.

“I am just not use to sharing so much all at once.”

“It’s OK really.” He put down his glass next to mine and leaned in a bit closer. “I’ve got another question for you then. Can I kiss you?”

I could feel as my cheeks heated and I hesitated for a second. Then I leaned in and kissed him. It was a gentle kiss at first. I felt one of his hands on my cheek and another holding my arm to keep me steady. As he deepened the kiss I felt the world around me fade into a blur.

Then all of a sudden the kiss broke. It took me a moment to realize that somebody else had come out into the garden as well and now tried to get our attention.

“Liam, I you have an appointment in half an hour you need to prepare for.”

I looked over and saw an old man standing in an oversized suit. Well I guess he wasn’t really that old, maybe around mid-forty’s. He had a stretched face and a look in his eyes that made me moved a bit closer to Liam.

“Oh shit, I had forgotten all abut that.” He looked over at me again.

“I’m really sorry Liza but I have to be at this meeting.”

“It’s okay, really. I can just come by another day. If you want me to?”  He smiled at me in a way that made my cheeks blush again.

“I would very much like that.” He stood up and helped me to my feet. We walked together back through the house to the front door.

“Until next time.” I said and walked away. When I came home I could still feel the warmth of his lips on mine.
